I'd have to guess that the two on the left are at least 6'8" tall.  :-\ :)

Can't wait to meet you both at Kerrville.  Have fun and we'll see you in a few days.

Any word on the 2 since arrival.
For instance; when will they get their bikes, and get rollin'?

Yes, 6' 8" is pretty close.   :rotflmao:

Will someone please tell Ralf he has to shave occasionally. {so we can see his happy/smiling face}
And; tell Andree that wearing a "stripped shirt" in front of a prison, while holding his hands in the air,,, might concern people..

You need to finally join the 21st Century and get on facebook



Then you would see all of the 108 photos :c029: Ralf has posted so far this week.  That is just too many for me to go through and post here for non-facebook users to see.  Try clicking on the link above and maybe you will get to see the posts.  YMMV.  Here is a photo that was posted by Dan Breedon.

Mike,
Thanks for posting these. I myself don't get on FB very often, and this week has been extra crazy getting the Beast ready for the trip.

It's nice to see them smiling. But Mark, it looks like your (beer)belly has grown up  :)
But where is Dan. I couldn't find him on the picture.
Andre should beglad , standing in front of the wall an not behind. His shirt is .....

I hope you'll have a nice ride and show us a lot of pictures.

Caption from left: Russ, Mark Owen, Mark (dog in lap), Dan (stripped shirt), Ralf, Andre (seated) and Keith. This was at the end of the first day when OtP picked up their bikes in LA and rode north to Santa Cruz. They got into town around 10:30 pm and were chilled to the bone from riding through the damp coastal air from Big Sur. Happy to host them for later dinner at my house, but had to take them back to their motel at 1 a.m. so they could get a few hours sleep before climbing over the Sierra the next day.
Great to see everyone!

Had lunch with the dynamic duo OTP travelers today at the Nimitz Museum.
Not sure why they didn't try the chocolate covered bacon, I did and it was quite good.

Them two fellas know how to chow down German food!  :)

Had a great time (Again) with Ralf and Andree.
Both are GREAT "OtP" representatives...

Those of you that didn't get to meet them, you missed some fine folks!

Ride safe guys.
Let us know when you get back home.

Andre and Ralf were wonderful!  I hope that some day I'll get to see them again.  Maybe I go to Europe!
